BACKGROUND: Post-systolic shortening (PSS) is a novel echocardiographic marker of myocardial dysfunction. Our objective was to assess the prognostic value of PSS in patients following acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS: A total of 428 patients hospitalized for ACS (mean age 64 ± 12 years, male 73%) underwent speckle tracking echocardiography following treatment with PCI (median 2 days). The individual endpoints were heart failure (HF), myocardial infarction (MI) and all-cause death...

A 68-year-old man with a non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) presented with a low risk profile indicating invasive revascularization within 72 h. However, left ventricular (LV) global longitudinal strain (GLS) calculated by two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE) in the Emergency Room showed substantial myocardial infarction. Therefore, urgent reperfusion therapy was decided and delivered within 30 min from hospital admission. LV GLS fully recovered after the invasive procedure and the final infarct size was 7%...

BACKGROUND: Following acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), restoration of large-vessel patency does not mean complete perfusion recovery. Little is known regarding the predictors of successful myocardial reperfusion for the STEMI patients undergoing pharmacologic and mechanical reperfusion strategies. AIM OF THE WORK: The aim of this clinical study was to find out the predictors of myocardial functional recovery following reperfusion of acute STEMI, represented by 3-month global longitudinal strain (GLS) value assessed by speckle tracking echocardiography...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery disease is the most prevalent manifestation among cardiovascular diseases. Despite modern treatment, risk of ischemic complications in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) remains important. The late Na+ current blocker ranolazine has shown to reduce the risk of recurrent ischemia and worsening of angina in patients with non-ST-segment elevation ACS by possibly improving myocardial perfusion, but up to now no trial has addressed whether this enhanced perfusion also leads to a decrease in ischemic myocardium of patients with ACS...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) exercise training is beneficial after myocardial infarction (MI). Whilst the peripheral adaptations to training are well defined, little is known regarding the effect on left ventricular (LV) remodelling, particularly LV function. Efficient LV ejection and filling is achieved through deformation and rotation of the myocardium in systole and diastole - LV mechanics. The response of LV mechanics to CR exercise training in MI patients is unknown. METHODS: In this observational exploratory study, 36 (of 40 enrolled) male, MI patients completed either 10-weeks of twice-weekly gym based cardiovascular exercise at 60-80% VO2peak (n=18), or a non-exercise control period (n=18)...

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have a high risk of mortality after acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We compared STEMI patients with versus without COPD in terms of infarct size and left ventricular (LV) systolic function using advanced 2-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography. Of 1,750 patients with STEMI (mean age 61 ± 12 years, 76% male), 133 (7.6%) had COPD. With transthoracic echocardiography, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and wall motion score index were measured...

Cardiac function improvement and chamber remodeling after the onset of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is crucial as it is closely related to the outcomes of patients. We sought to investigate the predictive value of left ventricular (LV) global and region of interest (ROI) assessment for prognosis of AMI patients by speckle tracking echocardiography (STE). We prospectively enrolled 81 first-onset AMI patients for baseline and 6-mo follow-up analysis. The echocardiography-derived parameters were compared in receiver operator characteristics (ROC) analysis for prediction of LV remodeling (LVR) (a minimum 20% increase of LV end-diastolic volume) and cardiac function improvement (a minimum 5% increase of LV ejection fraction)...

Objectives In patients with abnormal left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), cardiac rehabilitation with physical training prevents cardiac remodelling. To define the role of rehabilitation in the recovery of ventricular function in less severe cases, we studied its effects on more refined indexes of left ventricular function in uncomplicated, low-risk patients. Methods and results Fifty-five patients underwent percutaneous coronary revascularization after uncomplicated first AMI...

OBJECTIVES: Abnormal glucose tolerance in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is associated with greater mortality and adverse cardiovascular effects. As statins possess a range of beneficial pleiotropic effects on the cardiovascular system, we sought to assess the cardioprotective effects of statins on left ventricular function in patients with AMI in relation to glycometabolic state. METHODS: In a prospective, randomized trial, 140 patients with AMI were randomized to intensive statin therapy receiving statin loading with 80 mg of rosuvastatin followed by 40 mg daily or standard statin therapy...
